Maya Rudolph has signed on to star opposite Christina Applegate in NBC's untitled Emily Spivey project, TVGuide.com has learned.
The project is an irreverent look at parenthood from the perspectives of an acerbic working mother (Applegate), her stay-at-home husband and her outspoken parents. The 38-year-old Saturday Night Live alum will play...
Cole Sprouse and Debby Ryan
Although Suite Life couple Cody and Bailey have recently reunited, star Debby Ryan, says the couple will have a major tiff in their upcoming Disney Channel original movie.
"They finally got back together and it was this huge monumental occasion," Ryan tells TVGuide.com. "They have a bit of a fight in the movie because he promised to spend their last spring break on the boat together, and it turns out he took an internship at a biology reserve."
Disney unveils new programming with familiar faces, rising stars
It was scary, wonderful television. But watching the screen was nothing compared to being in the studio audience for American Idol's Thursday night results show. Not one, but two of the contestants looked like they were going to have heart attacks — for completely different reasons — and one of them, Casey Abrams, who has already been hospitalized twice during this competition for severe intestinal problems, was escorted off the stage by a concerned staffer immediately after the show wrapped.
Don't tell the Warblers, but their main man has been doing a different kind of singing.
Last night, the teenage dream that is Glee's Darren Criss lent his voice — sadly just his speaking one — for a guest spot on FX's twistedly hilarious spy-toon Archer. In the blink-and-you'll-miss-it bit, Criss got to bust out a brogue and play dumber than Puck as Mikey, a junior-league lackey for the Irish mob who spills the beans to rampaging ISIS agent Sterling Archer — understandably miffed at the kid's bosses for swapping out his breast-cancer meds with a mix of "candy and Zima."
An Idiot Abroad
They're no dummies at the Science Channel. The cable network's smart move to acquire and run Ricky Gervais' U.K. series An Idiot Abroad has resulted in the channel's highest ratings ever.
To celebrate, the channel plans to run a marathon of all eight An Idiot Abroad episodes — plus a 30-minute preview special — from 2:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. on April Fool's Day (Friday, April 1).
Science Channel will also debut its first-ever Twitter event during the marathon: Starting at 8 p.m. that night, the channel will run Tweets from viewers (via the hashtag #AnIdiotAbroad) at the...
Evan Rachel Wood and Kate Winslet
It's the kind of role an actress would kill for — it won Joan Crawford a 1945 Oscar and is likely to reap Emmy and other honors for Kate Winslet — but I wish I could say HBO's deluxe but draggy miniseries redo of Mildred Pierce was to die for.
"From now on, honey, you're fast." So says a jaded neighbor lady (newly minted Oscar winner Melissa Leo) to Mildred, left by her failure of a husband to raise two girls alone in the Depression, as the unhappy Mrs. Pierce considers taking her hubby's lumpy business partner as a lover.
Mildred begs to differ. She's desperate, but not...
